Chesapeake's appetite

Recommended Posts

Tell her she's a Lab and she'll start chewing on shoes instead! grin.gif hehehe You probably need to catch her in the act and stop the activity. Also get her in the habit of chewing only on Nylabones or cow hooves or something substantial.

Good Luck! Ken

Hey Labs,

And for goodness sakes don't let 'em eat corn cobs. My 18 month old must have ate one about a week ago and it became lodged firmly in his bowels. Now he has about 15 staples in his stomache that cost me about 100 bucks each! Dosn't bother him though...3 days later he's walking around the house with a frisbee using the "pity me" eyes to try and get someone to throw it for him.

Prolly have to sell the boat you sold me just to pay the vet bill!

Nick

PS - the plug was in the boat. And I thought you said driving a boat onto a trailer was easy. I know there was a certain dock fisherman at a certain public landing in southern Minnesota this past Saturday that would testify to my lack of boat handling skills after that one! To bad I can't practice that in my driveway.

I swear, I think my dog is part beaver. She eats every single dry stick she can find. Has anyone had this problem, if so how did you remedy it? Sometimes I swear I could use her stools for fire starters! Thanks for any info.

Aside from landing the craft, how did the maiden voyage go? Everything check out? Hope she treats you as well as she treated me! You can e-mail too if you wish.

Good Luck! Ken

Welcome to the world of wood eaters!!! it seems to be a necessary part of their diet. Mine does it too. As long as it is not treated wood, too sharp, or painted you are doing well. There does not seem to be a good substitute that they choose to chew up either. Better than table legs and window sills!

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
